The Nature of Words

I got this in email yesterday…

The Nature of Words, Central Oregon’s Premier Literary Event, will take place November 2 through 5, 2006 in Bend, Oregon. Highlights of the weekend include readings by eight nationally acclaimed authors and poets at the Tower Theatre, two days of writing workshops held at the Oregon State University/Cascades Campus, and a sit-down dinner and panel discussion at the High Desert Museum. An open mike for regional writers, with the visiting authors in the audience, is the concluding event of the weekend.

Anyone with questions can contact us at 541.385.7025, via email at, or the website

You can follow the links on their website for buying tickets… in short, though, readings are $12, workshops are $45, and the reception and dinner is $65 and $85 (for different tables). The workshops are generally limited to 15 participants, so you’d better buy your tickets early.
